I don't usually get motion sick, but watching that video...that might be the trigger.

I'll bet there will be a lot of people who just flat fall over while learning how to operate this thing.

E85? Don't you have to replace seals/fittings and hoses to safely run that much alcohol?

Cars that can run it from the factory are/were marked "FFV" for "Flex-fuel vehicle". Neon never was, as far as I know.

Haven't had the problem in a Neon, but in the olden days if I experienced high speed misfire the first thing I suspected was spark or coil problems.

What spark plug gap are you running?

I just dropped my gas receipts from 2/07 to present into an Excel spreadsheet. I have a 104 mile per day commute, about 90% on the highway, and my highway speed averages about 74-75 mph. Commuting is probably 80-90% of my monthly driving. I get pretty consistently "around 30" mpg, with the actual 15...

The MTX was rated as fast as 7.5 seconds 0-60 (C&D, 1998 model year).

I can't easily believe that the ATX would add five and a half seconds to the 0-60. I'll believe two, maybe two and a half.

Yeah, if you have an 80's turbo Chrysler vehicle, look up "Grainger valve". As I understand it, you end up with, essentially, "dial-a-boost".

I keep meaning to get the horns off of my '64 Cuda (wrecked) and put them on my Neon. I think it would be a much more appropriate sound.

Mopar enthusiasts have been calling for the return of the Cuda, Challenger, and Charger since not long after they were discontinued. If we assume that the rise of Mopar Nats in the 80s coincides with the groundswell of people who wanted the return to musclecars, then it only took them about 25 years...

I have heard that some of the labs will throw out some samples if they get backlogged. Perhaps the age of the urine causes a problem.

I do hope you get lucky. And hopefully you've gained something from the experience either way.

I've always heard 7 pounds unsprung weight per side, so 15 pounds sounds right on.

Unsprung weight is "worse" from a suspension/handling standpoint than weight elsewhere in the vehicle.
